Student Absences

Effective from Term 4 we will be introducing the following policies:

All children MUST be present in their classroom for roll marking at 8:50am.Teachers will mark the roll and close it. Any child not in the classroom will be marked as absent.

 

Children who arrive after the roll has closed will be required to go to the office to collect a LATE SLIP for presentation to their teacher.

 

Office staff will check and clear the Absence Line before 9:45am and a DAILY UNEXPLAINED ABSENCE report will be run.

 

A generic SMS message will be sent to parents advising of their child’s absence and requesting an explanation. 

 

How you can help us to keep your child safe:

 

 

  • Phone the Student Absence Line before 9:30am to inform of any/all occasions when your child will be away from school. This is a 24hr recorded service, you can call it anytime. The STUDENT ABSENCE LINE number is 3902 8333 (option 1); we suggest you store this number in your phone. Alternatively you can email absence details to admin@gumdaless.edu.au or registered parents can utilise the QParents.
  • If you receive an SMS message, call the Student Absence Line to explain the absence OR if you believe your child should be at school contact the school office immediately to notify us.
